Alice P. Lazenby

October 29, 1946 — December 23, 2022

Alice P. Lazenby

“When the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.”

Alice Peters Lazenby, 76, of Evans, Georgia, is now there, in Heaven, proclaiming her love for Jesus. Alice’s name was called by her Lord and Savior and her beloved family members gone to glory before her, at 12:10 a.m. on December 23, 2022. Alice’s family is at peace knowing that Jesus welcomed her with open arms and the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant,” followed by Alice’s joyous response, “How great thou art!” As a devoted Christian, Alice believed that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Alice was surrounded by her family members as she passed from this earth peacefully into the arms of Jesus and her body was made whole and perfect. Holding her hands as she passed were her husband, Frank Lazenby, her daughters Karen Audrey Lazenby, and Sharon Lazenby McAlevy, and her evening caregiver Anna Miller. Alice was surrounded by love and her favorite hymns as she ascended into Heaven.

Alice was born on October 29, 1946, in Augusta, Georgia, to John and Inez Peters. She attended Butler High School and graduated in 1964. She attended, for a short time, nursing school at the Medical College of Georgia. Her early career was as a Medical Records Analyst for the Centers for Disease Control, the MCG Kidney Procurement Program, and the University Hospital Tumor Registry. Alice learned the art of steno mask court reporting from a long-time highly experienced court reporter and eventually achieved the level of Master Court Reporter and was an official court reporter for the Superior Courts of Richmond, Burke, and Columbia Counties, as well as the Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. She was a highly skilled medical transcriptionist working for several physicians and oral surgeons of the Augusta area while she owned and operated Lazenby Professional Services and Alice Lazenby Court Reporting and Medical Transcription. The Augusta Chronicle newspaper published a feature article about her extensive work as a Court Reporter. In her spare time, one of her favorite hobbies was singing in her church choir, The Sweet Adelines, and The Augusta Choral Society. (Alice was singing her favorite hymns until her time on earth was completed). Alice also gave her time to sew custom clothing and quilts for loved ones and friends.

Alice is survived by her beloved husband of 51 years, Frank Lazenby of Evans, and her two daughters, Sharon Lazenby McAlevy (Larry McAlevy) of Evans, GA, and Karen Audrey Lazenby (Tony McBrayer) of Knoxville, TN. Alice is also survived by her brother, Fred Peters (Karen McCown) of Atlanta, GA. Alice leaves to cherish her memory two granddaughters, Allison McAlevy of Augusta, GA, and Kristen McAlevy Grigg (Tyler Grigg) of Lake Stevens, WA., and a beloved great granddaughter, Chloe Emersyn Grigg, of Lake Stevens, WA., as well as a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her sister Melanie Elaine Smith, her father John Frederick Peters, Sr., and her mother Inez Delaigle Peters. Alice was very proud of her French heritage through the Delaigle family lineage.

The family would like to thank, and is forever grateful to, the following individuals who assisted Alice during her extended illness, and supported her husband, Frank, while he cared for her at home:

Mrs. Diane Dunham, RN, for her dedicated service, loving friendship, and spiritual encouragement to Alice during her final few years. The family could have never kept Alice in her own home and well cared for without Diane’s expertise and attention to detail in every aspect of Alice’s care. Diane was truly the family’s angel sent from Heaven just when they needed her the most.

Special thanks are given to Anna Miller, night caregiver, when many of Alice’s nights were trying and difficult. Her patience, love, and cheerful spirit helped the family greatly especially during Alice’s final days. Also, thank you to another night caregiver, Lynn Randall Greene, who assisted the family during Alice’s first days of extended care.

Many thanks and appreciation to Alice’s caregivers from Savannah River ProHome Health Care; Terry, Kaisha, Kiesha, Geneva, Sherrie, Minnie Pearl, Tina, Katrina, Layla, and Karmeisha. We also appreciate Gentiva Hospice for their wonderful nurses Jean and Karen, social worker Jeremy, and chaplain Rick.

Special appreciation is expressed to Lynette Augenstein for her friendship and care of Alice in her early days of home care, and to her son, Richie Augenstein, for providing inspirational gospel piano music to Alice which gave her immense peace and joy.

The funeral service will be a fulfillment of Alice’s desire to have a Bible study directed by Reverend Bill Harrell and assisted by Brother Dave Hester. The funeral will be held at Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors, 214 Davis Road, Augusta, GA 30907, on Thursday, December 29. Visitation will begin at 1:00 and the service will commence immediately thereafter at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel.
